The Mantle of Heaven

On a wonderful day like today

... and one of the worst minds installed in the White House.

Hard to believe that Trump is of the same generation as me.  He seems to have bypassed that formative experience loosely known as "the Sixties" entirely.

Heaven help us all!

A Dish Best Served Dead

Carrie Lam, Chief Waitress at the Hong Kong Restaurant, announced today that customers at the restaurant would be consulted over the next six weeks on how they would like their steak cooked.  Asked by reporters “what about customers who might prefer eggs or seafood instead of steak?”, Lam replied that the signature dish “Palace Museum Steak” – a small-scale copy of a recipe originated by the restaurant group’s head chef in Beijing – was the only item on the menu, and in any case an expert chef had already been secretly hired months ago to prepare the dish.

Following Lam’s announcement, Head Waiter CY Leung stated that he welcomed the consultation exercise – but whatever the outcome, the restaurant would "move on and cook the dish" anyway.  So there!

Trump - Idiot or Traitor?

So here's how the year ends.  Russia hacks into American computer systems.  This is espionage.  The US responds by expelling a bunch of Russian diplomats.  Russia announces it will not respond in kind.  America's next President then praises the Russian leader (mastermind of the espionage) as a smart guy.

This is not the reaction of a patriotic President.  It can only be the response of a fool or a traitor (or possibly both).  So which is it?  A halfwit in the White House or a Russian agent?  I think the American people should be asking themselves this question very seriously.

Happy New Year!

We Aren't The World

There is a tradition of American Presidential inaugurations attracting the greatest American artists to perform.  Previous inaugurations have featured such national musical icons as Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Aretha Franklin.

Following in this tradition, Donald Trump has invited a host of American superstars to sing at his inauguration - Elton John, Celine Dion, and Andrea Bocelli.  Oh, hold on a minute...

Never mind, they've all reportedly declined the invitation anyway, though Trump has secured a couple of other American icons (and even some of the Rockettes are said to be unhappy about it).  I guess those sneaky Limeys, Canucks and Eyeties just don't want America to be great again.

(And whatever possessed whoever in Trump's team thought of asking Elton John, given the incoming Vice President's well-documented homophobia?)  Reportedly he may instead play at an alternative "not my president" concert in Miami.

Anyway, here's wishing a Merry Christmas to all my readers!
